Dried porcini as you've never tasted them before! These delectable fungi are grown on the forested slopes of Mount Dirfis, island of Evia, where they develop their exquisitely subtle taste.
The king of mushrooms at your service! Porcini mushrooms that reign over all and are produced in Evia, Greece's fertile island. Porcini mushrooms are an excellent, edible, wild mushroom species, with a wonderful chestnut and hazelnut aroma, smooth texture and delicious taste, similar to that of meat.
It is a wild mushroom, which due to the special mycorrhizal relationship that it develops with forest trees, like fir and chestnut trees, it makes it impossible to be cultivated. In Greek nature, porcini mushrooms are collected in spring and autumn by experienced mushroom pickers. They are rich in fibre, antioxidants and are low in fat. Porcini mushrooms are also an excellent source of B complex vitamins, vitamin D, minerals and proteins. "Dirfys" wild mushrooms are collected under the supervision of special agriculturists, with care and respect to the natural environment. The natural way of drying ensures that all their ingredients remain intact. Regular chemical and microbiological tests are carried out in the laboratories of the Agricultural Department of the University of Athens and in accredited laboratories as well.
Prep & Usage
Enjoy the porcini mushrooms sautéed in olive oil with some garlic and parsley, in fresh salads with green leafy vegetables, in risottos, in pasta, in soups or to garnish meat dishes.

In 2006, two young men, Eleftherios Lahouvaris and Athanasios Mastroyannis, both university graduates in Agriculture but also with great experience in mushroom growing, founded "Dirfis" – a company situated Northern Evia. Being dedicated and passionate lovers of the agricultural mycology sector, they are 'fiercely' engaged in the cultivation of pleurotus mushrooms and in the production of products of high gastronomical and bioactive, functional value. They participate in pioneering research projects in cooperation with universities; they constantly make sure they keep up to date with the latest developments in their field. Moreover, they share their knowledge of mushrooms through international congresses and seminars.
What "Dirfis" does, is to collect and dry wild mushrooms found in the Greek forests and launch them to the market. Eleftherios and Athanasios aim at creating new products based on mushrooms and also emphasizing their nutritious and bioactive ingredients.Dirfis has installed its mushroom cultivation unit at a safety distance of 7 km from the substrate production unit to ensure that conditions of hygiene are kept high and that risk of infection during pasteurization and incubation is kept at its lowest possible level.
Dirfis chose its location at the foothills of Mount Dirfis very carefully using stringent environmental criteria. The company's production unit is surrounded by lush vegetation and is characterized by a terrain that is ideal for the creation of the microclimate mushrooms need in order to grow. The location of the plant is free of any vehicle or industrial pollution and follows to the letter all the specifications necessary in producing wholesome products that are rid of any external polluting factors. One of the most impressive natural phenomena is how rapidly and suddenly mushrooms appear. That phenomenon is directly linked to the evaporation rate of the mycelium's growing fruit body and osmotic pressure. By applying the appropriate ventilation and by maintaining the cultivation cabin at the right temperature and humidity, the Dirfis team ensures that the evaporation rate of its precious cultivations will remain within required levels.
